There have an air leak between the carb and the cylinder and/or the head and cylinder. Old hard / cracked rubber fittings and O rings are usually the problem. When extra air gets into the system it leans the fuel mix and the high idle is the result. It also means the engine runs hotter. Also, cracked or broken reeds can be a source.

Sounds like a vacuum leak is leaning out the mixture....check the intake between carb and engine for leaks...another source may be tjhe crankcase seals are leaking.

SOURCE: what is the standard air
Hi, You have a closed mainjet (need cleaning) as for idling you must screw in all the way and then unscrew 2 turns (that's a standart) and then you only have to do minor adjustments.
As for the needle position they all work the highest grove you set the more fuel to your engine. Start from the lowest, test the bike for power and rpm's and adjust from there
